My Ukiyo-e prints has lots of strengths. First of all I think I had a good color plan. Blue on yellow. Red on black.
I am happy that I thought of using the golden state logo. I think something I did well was carving because I felt like i could carve every small detail on my carving. I also think I did well design because it is complicated but not hard to carve. Some solution I felt proud of was when not all the color was getting to the page.My solution was to spread the ink straight then turn the printing plate around and spread the ink again so the ink reached all the places. Matthew really helped me with my cultural influence.At first I just wrote because there are lots of lines in Indian motifs I chose it, but Matthew said that there are lines in every motif so choose something more specific to India and now I have a more specific reason. My personal interest also got better because I added more detail.
I think my interlocking needs a little more work. If my ink transfers properly and perfect, then I can get my interlocking well. But right now the transfer is not going well so my interlocking still needs work.My interlocking creates circles in the side and squares in the top right left, both bottom left and right.I chose yellow and blue as my colors because those are the golden state warriors colors. I also chose red and black because those are the atlanta hawks colors(I do not like the team. I like the colors)
As seen in the photo this is my coat of arms. I made my coat of arms with orange and blue because they are bright and recognizable colors and the wall. My motto is Le basket-ball est égal à la vie (Basketball is equal to life) because personally I agree on that and i think it suits my coat of arms. Usually the coat of arms have 2 lions on each side but I changed mine to Stephen curry because he is related to basketball and he is my favorite player. In the middle of my coat of arms I have the sign of my favorite team golden state warriors. It is very clear that I am a huge basketball fan and I love the sport so that’s why I chose it as my main theme in my coat of arms. I think that this project was really fun and interesting and I hope we do an activity like this in the future.
I think that my learning in art class helped me a lot because before coming to art class I used to draw cartoons and couldn’t draw realistic. After coming I learned about shadows, highlights, gradation and many more. I used the tips that Mr. Reed gave me like “Why don’t you add more highlights here” or “add a little shadow near the eye” and some other tips. Using these tips my realistic drawing skills got so much better and my drawing improved so much. I also found out that a blending stump is very useful for me to bend the lines on my drawing and also adding shadows and highlights make your drawing look more three-dimensional.
If I did this unit again there are some things I would like to change, such as changing my expression for my photo because I was just smiling in this one but maybe next time I could change it too a smirk it would be a little different to draw. Another thing I want to change is if I had a little more time I could have worked on close details for my hair because I think that there was not much detail. If I spend more time on hair I could have made it more realistic and look like actual hair.
2 words I chose to describe myself this unit is collaboration and reflective. I was collaborator because I asked advice from many people and they gave some good tips and I was talking with everyone to make my drawing best as possible. I also was a reflector because after each class I thought if I did good progress and did I use my time well.

This is my last reflection on my myth book.
Something that went well in this project was that the first graders were really engaged with myth story. They were concentrating on my book and asked questions like Where is this story from, or were does this take place. I was really happy to see the first graders engaged in my book.
Next time I would like to change the book from a 2d normal book to a 3d or pop out book. Why, because people will become shocked to see drawing pop out from the page and I think they will be even more engaged. I had lots of fun reading the book to the first graders. I had lots of fun and I hope the first graders had fun too.
I think that I did really good job on my english book.
I really liked my myth and how I designed my book.
A part I want to improve on next time is that to make the font easier for 1st graders to read. An easy font people can read is Trebuchet MS or Arial.
I also want to improve my drawings to be more sophisticated and detailed. Next time I will learn to draw a little better for example drawing the face shape more accurately and making the eyes look realistic.
I really like the background for my story page and the page looks old. This will make it so that the 1st graders will think that it was made long ago.
Some difficulties I had during this project was the drawing because at first my drawings were really bad so I had to redo them again and again until I got them good.
I think I used my time effectively and did not waste that much time.WAt first I didn’t get much done, but after I got the idea of my book, I finished it really fast. This shows me that when I am focused and have a good plan, I can complete tasks well.
The only thing I am worried about is that the 1st graders will break my book.
I really enjoyed this project and I am pretty sure the first graders will like it.
